Audience Recording by Gerry Olsen.

Sony TC-124 single-capstan portable cassette deck equipped with Sony F-99S One Point Stereo Dynamic Microphone IMP LOW
(hand-held). 120 minute BASF normal bias tape.

Lineage via Dan McDonald (droncit@yahoo.com):
Master Audience Cassette->Nakamichi BX-1 (modified for flat transfer)-> Tascam DR-07MK2 (24-bit, 96kHz);
DC8Forensics was used to apply the NAB curve for normal bias cassettes. Converted to 16-bit, 44.1kHz
using 32-bit interpolation and a triangular high pass dither.

After the NAB curve in a multifilter I applied a virtual vale and overtone generator for lost
harmonics and used a channel blender to blend below 150 Hz to mono to minimize mic handling noise.

Notes from Gerry: "No encore that night, as "Baby Blue" calmed things down nicely and the "in for $3 Thursday night"
home audience was completely satisfied, plus the Dead still had three more nights to play that weekend...."
also, in regards to the question as to whether that was potato chips that you hear occasionally:
"My then 14 year old brother was on one side and a friend, ..., was on the other. Although my hands were otherwise
occupied, I probably snacked some too, plus my brother had a cough to boot."

Notes from Dan: This is a tape I can only call "charming." Just a totally enjoyable experience. Very nicely done, the
band is in fine form, and the tapers are having a great time. There are some cuts where the tape broke and where Gerry was
unable to get the whole song. There is also some distortion on certain songs - it's not in
the tape or the wav file, it's from the stage. There are comments from the audience and the band occasionally. It's most
noticeable during Attics of My Life, but also when Garcia hits certain notes with his vocals. I tried to minimize it but
it was too difficult to work with, so I left it as it is. I lowered coughing and potato chip bag noises when it distracted
from the music. Otherwise, I left it in. Sit back and relax, and spend an evening back in 1970. Many thanks to Gerry for
trusting me with the tapes. They were a pleasure to work with.

---Thank you Gerry Olsen for recording the show.
---Thank you miogi for your work with the acoustic sbd.
---Thank you Charlie Miller for your work on the electric sbd.
---Thank you Dan McDonald for your transfer and master of the audience.
---Thank you Germain for your advice, encouragement, guidance and seeding.

Show information is embedded within the header of each flac file.
It will display on any player capable of directly playing flac
files. If converted to wav during processing, all tags will be
stripped, however audio data will remain unaffected. If you must
transcode to a lossy format, do so directly Flac > Lossy.
Use ffp to validate audio integrity.
Md5 values will change if tagging is altered.

"Swing Low" aside, where there was a sizeable gap in the SBD source, dusborne's matrix is the way to go for the acoustic set. The intro and "Monkey" are pure AUD, and a pure AUD "Swing Low" is easily available elsewhere.
School is out for summer, meaning I'm 1A again, and in another week or so I'll again start working swing-shift six nights a week at the Del Monte pickle factory in San Jose, but tonight I'm driving my '54 Ford pick-up to SF to see the GD for the first time, taking my then 14-year old brother and a buddy along with me; free apples, handbills and posters included, all for $3 admission. Led Zep, with Isaac Hayes, at Winterland last November was fun, but there were those girls panhandling while we were in line; "spare change to see the Grateful Dead?" and the Dead decided not to play at Altamont last December. We obviously chose a perfect spot on the floor and it was just like having them in your living room, with a few balloons bouncing around too. The album Workingman's Dead will be released in about a week.

1) Intro/a few million adjustments/while we're waiting for Pigpen
